First, let me wish everyone a "Happy New Year". Secondly, we have qualified for "War Veteran Status" for 2015, by having 90% or more of our membership serve during a wartime. This allows any donations to USSVI to be "Tax Deductible".We must requalify for this status every year, and our current status runs from January 1st to December 31st.

If you were in the Military (even the Reserves)  during the following time frames :Dec 7, 1941 to Dec 31, 1946, June 27 1950 to Jan 31, 1955, Aug 5, 1964 to may 7, 1975 and from Aug 2, 1990 to present, you qualify as a War Veteran.

To insure that you are listed as a "War Veteran", go to and click on the "My Profile" button. Next, click on Up-date PROFILE Next, click on "Naval Career", and halfway down the page, check the box under "Served During a War". You MUST then go to the bottom of the page and click on " Save changes made to this page in order for the change to be registered. While you are in your profile, please check any other parts of your profile that need changing.(Be sure to go to the bottom of each page and save those changes.


Thanks, and Happy New Year again

Bill Andrea
